The founder of Adoration Ministry Enugu, Nigeria (AMEN), Rev. Fr Ejike Mbaka, has accused governors of masterminding the re-arrest of detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The fiery Catholic priest made the remarks during his Wednesday weekly ministration titled “E no dey again”.
In a speech obviously directed to Southeast Governors, he said:
“Don’t sell your sons and daughters because of political promise that you are not even sure will materialise tomorrow.
“Don’t sell your son because you are governors today! Live and let live.
“Let the leaders listen. The solution is not in arrest and handcuff, the solution is in job creation!
“Leaders beware! Their(leaders’) stubbornness will collapse this country one day. If care is not taken, it will happen like an earthquake!
“Even if you arrest 100 people, it will not stop the agitation. If anything, it will worsen the situation.”
Comparing Nnamdi Kanu’s arrest, to those that killed Jesus Christ, Mbaka said:
“Many people are clapping for them now. But when the heat becomes unbearable when the sun riots, when heavens shake you will understand.
“When they killed Jesus Christ and put him in the prison-grave – Jesus’ prison was in the grave – they thought it was all over for Him, that the end had come.
“Whoever that you have in heart now that is in the prison, may the Lord be with that person. May the Lord show such persons mercy. May they receive favour; favour for my people.
“May the Lord show him favour, even from the prison warders that would be protecting him”.
Taking a swipe at the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government, he continued:
“Our suffering in Nigeria is unnecessary. There is no reason, apart from wickedness, why people should suffer in this country.
“I remember when we were growing up. You would hardly hear that people stole. Politics was not about amassing wealth at that time. But today, kidnapping has become a multi-billion business. And if you come to the Southeast, the zone has become the hub of hardship.
“If our leaders do not find a way to put Nigeria in a good platform, one day, this country will collapse!
“If they do not do what they should do, they do not provide jobs but rather continue to amass wealth and millions of Nigerian youths keep watching them.
“Time shall come when what we are experiencing today would appear like mere biscuit.
“Our leaders are not ready to utilize our resources well but it cannot continue like this. Vengeance is coming,” he said.
